the screw closest to the firewal l. You will need an adapter if you get the pressure hose though to fill up the freon. If you had a series II you can just hook the hose right up.

AKA the larger rigid pipe! The high pressure is the one that is near the radiator and gets warm when the A/C is running.

I have a series 1 but my refridgerant is r-134 (factory sticker under the hood). I just got one of the quick recharge kits that came with their own nozzle, and it would only fit on the low pressure side, so it wasnt an issue
